The Bible of Facial Flaps March 6, 2010
This text is simply the best text available for comprehensive local flap reconstruction in the head and neck. If you do these procedures, get this text. This edition included eye lid reconstruction. You will not be disappointed. Also, the design and photos are a thing of beauty. Thank you Shan Baker.
 Many years of experience October 27, 2009
Dr Baker is an ENT surgeon practicing facial plastic surgery. With this second edition he shares with the readers his many years of operative experience with fine case presentations. My personal oppinion is that one can never own to many books, especially when it comes to operative technique and case solutions. Overall the book is beutifully illustrated and contains many excellent flap designes and clever solutions that actually work. Dr Baker is a skilful surgeon and has a wide experience in small flap surgery of the face. His strong areas are the ear and nose and the nasolabial flap, forehead and glabellar flap. Oculoplastics are better covered elsewhere and microsurgery and distant flaps does not belong to this publication in my oppinion. This is a good flap book that I can recommend to anyone confronted by surgical defects in the head and neck area. If one had to chose just one book I would recommend Ian Jacksons lokal flaps of the head and neck as my first choice for the same price as it contains all the basic and more advanced flaps and skips out the confusing and often unnessessary variations that propably caused more problems then they solved. The DVD is a nice addition but doesn’t add a whole lot to the book.
 Good illustration December 16, 2011
This book is well organized. Particularly, the illustration is excellent. Operation procedure is relatively well described. However, some detail is lack.
